    40.X and steering Wheel weight?

    It’s rare that I don’t use a weight on a longer drive. But I did a 45 min drive today with my hands actually on the wheel. Got a defeat device detected message halfway through the drive. It did not kick me off autopilot or give me any strikes. I put on my weight and it’s fine for the rest of the...

    40.X and steering Wheel weight?

    Mines attached to the right side of the yoke and weights exactly 1.55 lbs. I did some testing today and earned a strike by leaving the weight on after putting it in park and driving again. It seems the car checks for weight when put into drive. As long as you put in the weight after putting...

    40.X and steering Wheel weight?

    I only use my weight on longer 20+ minute freeway drives. But I had no issues using it on a 2 hours drive with 2022.44.25.5 and a few 20-45 minute on 36.x versions. Not sure which of these factors are tricking the detection: I rarely take my eyes off the road because I don’t actually trust...

    false green light chime at the traffic light

    On FSD beta, I have had 2-3 instances where the car saw the wrong traffic light (the next intersection’s light) and tried to run the light, forcing a disengagement. Not sure what causes it since it’s an intersection I use regularly and FSD has not issues most of the time. Reported to Tesla every...

    Have you de-scummed your glass yet?

    Here’s how I’ve been doing it for all my new cars. My BMW had the worse interior glass ever. Some clear adhesive streaking the inside, way worse than any Tesla I’ve seen. -Clay bar the exterior glass. -Use rubbing alcohol on disposable Scott glass shop towels to clean both exterior and...

    Tesla FSD beta safety score reset

    I appear to have a defective radar on my MS. Getting errors such as autopilot failed due to unexpected error and autosteering errors every few minutes, but only when following a car. Autopilot also displayed some dangerous behaviors such as trying to ram cars in front of me while driving. I...

    What music service is included with the premium connectivity?

    Picking a song through voice command uses Slacker/LiveXLive radio. It’s some special account type linked to the car and only works when you have the premium connectivity subscription.

    2021+ Model S and Model S Plaid Refresh Issues Thread

    Just wanted to share issues I found on mine. Just dropped off for service today. Vehicle does not have all season tires. I confirmed during delivery and was told Tesla will make this right if they are not all seasons. Please swap to all season tires. Center Console Light reversed (On when...

    Accessories for 2021 Refresh Model S Plaid/LR

    Got my front mudflaps today. I thought I was doing something wrong because I couldn't get the push clips to go in on the underside of the car on either side. I had no trouble getting the ones in the wheel well in. I don't have a jack either so I couldn't see what was going on very well. Got...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    I’ve been told by 3 people at Tesla this week I’m only able to reject once. And rejection likely results in an existing VIN being assigned the second time, rather than a brand new factory VIN. I’ve been lied to by Tesla tons of times so not sure if this is 100% correct. I want to reject and...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Stopped my my local Tesla store to see if my car was in for my scheduled delivery tomorrow. Not in yet, was told it’s on a truck 3-4 hours outside of town. There’s a dozen MS all LR, being prep for deliver. Not a single MS Plaid. There is a MX Plaid. First refresh X I’ve seen. Also recall...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Tesla won’t let me hold. Spoke to someone today. They said if I reject, I get one more go. But they’ll just assign the first available car. Looks like I’m likely taking delivery this Friday.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Damn it. I really want the new lights. Been on my wishlist since I ordered. Will probably hold/reject my current VIN. Waited this long already, rather wait longer to get everything I want. Also feels nice to be rejecting Tesla for once rather than the other way around.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Just got voicemail/email/text asking to schedule delivery between 1/11-1/15. Scheduled one on 1/14. This is the last chance I’m giving them to delivery my car. I have decided not to get the vehicle if they unassign VIN again or if I have to reject delivery due to quality issues.

    If I can find my build anywhere in the continental US, I would take it. The only one I saw close to mine was said it was in Honolulu. No idea how to get it across the ocean. :confused:

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Also called back to complain about how they keep tricking me into selling my car and leaving me car-less. Asked if they can provide a loaner and was told no. They did say my order was marked in the system as “priority”. Whatever that meant.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Got an automated call asking me to confim my delivery appointment. An hour later got a call saying due to logistical issues my delivery date has been pushed back and to expect delivery by end of January. VIN unassigned in Tesla account. And it’s showing a date range of Jan 5-9 there. If any of...

    Worked with my advisor to get an after-hours delivery on 12/30 after I get back. They have me down in the system for 5:30pm, but they will expect me at 6. I was also told they will make 12/31 work if something comes up and I miss that time. Sold my temporary Model 3 to another dealer today...

    Unhappy with tesla trade in value - 2021

    I mean I paid $56,500 for it myself just 4 months ago. I was hoping to sell for a touch higher at $54,000. Seems like buyers in my area are too cautious to spend that much at a private sale. But are willing to pay more when it’s sitting at a dealer.

    Unhappy with tesla trade in value - 2021

    Well that sketchy dealer kept their word after all. Sold for $52,000. Was told my car was super clean and ready for resale without touching it. They're waiting on the title and will resell in the $56-57 range.

    My highest firm offer in writing is EchoPark for $50,300. They are a lesser known national chain. No one’s been able to beat that yet. Already tried using it to negotiate.

    Unhappy with tesla trade in value - 2021

    Local dealers here refer to that as an “in-and-out”. Also have some offering to do that for me as well, but Tesla won’t work with them to do so. I remember in 2018 looking at a MX. They were willing to do that back then. Seems like they got to big to care.

    Unhappy with tesla trade in value - 2021

    Also, I did some checking with my accountant. Since I itemize on tax return, I can itemize sales tax paid. But I was told I cannot itemize losses on personal property. Therefore, although the trade-in tax credit appears lucrative upfront, I still probably get a bit more back in the end after...

    I’m having a tough time getting a decent price for my 2019 M3 LR, white/white, FSD, acceleration boost, 18,700mi. Bought used directly from Tesla 4 months ago when I was out of a proper car due to the Model S delay. Paid $56,500. I was hoping to private sale it for about $54,000 which seems...

    Driver Monitoring in 10.5

    Just an update to the two strikes I got under 10.5.1. Discovered today they have showed back up after all and was not reset. Seems like the update just temporary reset my strikes by mistake for a few days. I recall checking multiple times after the update to 10.6.1 for 2-4 days to make sure...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    I do like the new taillights. Plus anyone know if FSD Beta access from my M3 can be transferred to the S? Or would I have to try re-qualifying again with the safety score?

    RN1148. Ordered April 25, 2021. White/white LR with FSD and tempest wheels. VIN NF463 just got assigned and email to schedule delivery between 12/22 and 12/24 in Salt Lake City, UT. My delivery day was between end of January to mid February just last week. So wasn’t expecting it. Now’s not a...

    Driver Monitoring in 10.5

    Just got 10.6.1. Drove about 10mi, mostly freeway to dinner. So far appears to be fixed for me. No pay attention prompts on the freeway. My 2 of 3 strikes also appear to be reset. Not seeing it under the autopilot menu anymore.

    Yes, still behaves the same way if the FSD toggle is switched off.

    Driver Monitoring in 10.5

    Happened both bright clear day or at night for me. With or without other people in the car. Phone in hand or in pocket. Doesn’t seem to matter. The only thing that helps with mine so far is any form of glasses. I do agree with #5. Only happens on freeway/highway/straight roads. Not in the city...

    Driver Monitoring in 10.5

    Was able to test with 10.6 and a pair of blue light blocking glasses from Amazon. For me, 10.6 seems to have some minor improvements to false driver monitoring alerts. I feel like maybe 30%-40% better. I got alerts within about 10-15 seconds of taking my glasses of on 10.5.1. It’s a few...

    Driver Monitoring in 10.5

    I just took a 3 hour trip at night. Did a ton of testing and found out: Wearing sunglasses fixes the issue. As long as the car can’t see my eyes. So I wore sunglasses for most of my road trip at night. Funny how this safety feature made me do an unsafe thing so I could get autopilot to work on...
